* This document was not on PACE's agenda and was prepared at the last moment, filed one minute before the official deadline for document submissions. PACE had very little time to make sure that it was edited according to UN standards and The UN editor who has revised the text has modified "The US" or "US" by "The United States of America", which doesn't make for an easy read and doesn't always make sense. Apologies to our readers.
PACE is a non-profit, charitable corporation whose objects are to facilitate the discovery, research, development, demonstration and evaluation of clean energy systems. PACE is an NGO with Special Consultative status with the Economic and Social council of the United Nations (ECOSOC).
PACE was founded in June 1975 in Ottawa, Canada, under the guidance of the Hon. Senator Chesley W. Carter, then Chair-person of the Senate’s Standing Committee on Health, Welfare and Science as well as member of the Senate Special Committee on Science Policy. With the Hon. Carter, a number of scientists undertook to make use of this Association to develop an international interdisciplinary network of advanced scientific thinking individuals and organizations.
